LOCOS COMMUNITY DAY IS A SUN-KISSED SUCCESS. Inverurie Loco Works hosted a hugely successful Community Day on Saturday, with the day being in conjunction with the Garioch Goes Green environmental project & the football club's close partners at Aberdeen Football Club Community Trust. The weather gods were ever so kind as warm temperatures & a bright sun welcomed around 1,000 people into the stadium. The festivities kicked off with a Walking Football Tournament & a Syrian Scots Football Session, both at garish Sports Centre, expertly marshalled by Community Coach Stephen Boddie who played a huge part again in making the day so special. Talented local singer/songwriter Scott Mellis entertained the crowds outside Harlaw Park, with many in short sleeves & sun hats. Those youngsters through the turnstiles early all received Easter Eggs courtesy of the Locos. Hundreds of tickets were handed in to local primary schools and a competition connected to the Garioch Goes Green initiative saw Anna Cunningham & Oliver Mess win the competition to be mascots for the day, receiving a full Locos kit, signed match ball, stadium tour, photos with players & being nominated by Main Sponsor CALA Homes to release the red, black & gold balloons into the clear blue sky just ahead of kick off. The day was superbly supported by some of the Locos Charity Partners, a face painter was on hand & the players were piped onto the field of play by Aberdeen piper Ross Baxter, Scotland the Brave being a marvellous musical backdrop to a resplendant & gleaming Harlaw Park. Half time saw 4x4 matches out on the park & of course any such day isn't complete without the obligatory mascot race! A wonderful Locos performance topped off a great day in wonderful style. A special mention to the Inverurie Mens' Shed who gave support before, during & after the event. Plans for the Community Day 2019 start now!
